Loss of a Child - The Future Symphony [LostChildren001]


Published April 4, 2003


An instrumental rock band from London, England, Loss of a Child use pianos, string sections, guitars and drums to create a classically-influenced post-rock noise. With elements boarding on quiet ambience and others with distorted guitars and crashing drums, the ambitious nature with the classical instruments sets Loss of a Child apart from many leftfield acts, producing a hugely epic sound.

The Future Symphony lays "its foundations in more classical notions and scratching the surface with a rough ambient texture. The end result of all this noise is a challenging and thought-provoking dose of coma inducing psycho-therapy. The Future Symphony doesn't warp the mind like many experimental outfits try to do; but instead they seek to suspend the illusion of reality for a brief moment and embark on a multi-tiered journey through the deepest human memories. It's not all happy experiences and sunshine, for darker moments litter the way, but it's a spectacular ride through and through, and one that has unforeseen importance in the modern world of music."

Subject: Absolutely wonderful.
From the first notes of the first song, I was absolutely blown away. I've listened to a lot of instrumental/post rock, and I have to say that this is rapidly climbing my list of favorites. And best of all, it's totally free!

I love this music. I am a post-rock fan and think this is one of the best releases that I have heard this year! Awesome effort!

That's great!
Reviewer: bursto22 - - January 24, 2006
Subject: The deal
I agree about the processing i dont feel that there is a lot of new stuff with this music from a theoretical standpoint the chord progressions are pretty predictable. Its ok but i think its a bit over rated

Epic!
Reviewer: HopeIsLife - - January 7, 2006
Subject: I'm very impressed!
Must admit that these songs have been ringing around my ears non-stop for days! Very technical, bordering on Math, and stupidly epic songs. Loving it.

The only minor grudge being the low budget - though when it's turned up loud it sounds perfect, kind of industrial-esque.

Subject: Needs higher production expectations!
Some really good ideas are hidden in there, but sadly most of the instruments played (drums, piano...) sound processed from the first patch on the synth next door or sequenced with a multisampled kit downloaded for free...
